Yellow beeswax pastilles
Choose a Variant

Product Notice July 17, 2023: Our yellow beeswax is now packaged in pastille form but was previously packaged in granules. Granules and pastilles handle, measure, and melt similarly.

With its sweet and earthy aroma, our pure Yellow Beeswax is ideal for candle making or various bath and body recipes. Beeswax is often a key ingredient in balms, salves, butters, lotion bars, and more personal care products. Our beeswax is packaged in pastille form for easy handling and measuring. If you prefer using beeswax with its natural odor removed, we recommend our White Beeswax.

Candle Maker's Notes:
Beeswax can be very difficult to wick. When, where, and how it was obtained all factor into how it will perform in candles. With so many variables, it's hard to predict which wick size to use. For this reason, it will take a bit more testing to find the best one for your candles. We generally recommend the ECO series for beeswax.

Yellow Beeswax - Pastilles

I found this very easy to work with and I love the pastilles. What I received is the exact scent of what beeswax is supposed to smell like. I'm still testing it out by adding to my soy wax, but so far I'm very happy.

I love all waxes from Candle Science

I bought the yellow beeswax to make lotion bars and salves. This is perfect for the reason I purchased it. I love the pastille form it comes in. I don't sense any odor as other reviewers have said. Get one pound if you intend to make and use lotion bars and salves. I am coming back to get the white beeswax too.

I love it

I actually loved the outcome of my candles. I bought what i thought was a lb of beeswax but after measuring to see how many 4oz tin candles i would get i noticed it wasn’t exactly a lb. other than that i will buy again!!!!

My shop does not open until September and I'm still in the testing phase. However, this is lovely beeswax. Excellent fragrance, clean pastels too! I did not find ANY contamination in CSs pastels. I also appreciate the pastels form! Very easy to weigh and melts evenly. I know beeswax is expensive, but generally I only add a small amt to my proprietary container candle wax blends because if you add TOO much, it will crack near the wick-(especially if you use wooden wicks).
Candle Science has their own recommendations for how much beeswax to use in your wax blends, but I have found a little under 1 ounce :: to 11oz of other waxes seems to do well. Anything above that ratio (and obviously depending on what your "other" waxes are), it will crack down the center.
Beeswax is a hard wax so its AMAZING for adding an extra hardness to soft waxes like coconut, apricot & soy etc. The only thing you have to watch out for is, if you don't temper beeswax while its cooling (heating your jars up first, making sure the ambient room temp is around 90 degrees or so, it shrinks on itself very fast, which causes the cracking. Tip for candle makers here, (some of my researched proprietary info ;)- 1.) I use seedling heat mats for cooling my candles. It helps to regulate the cooling and HELPS with sinkholes and/or cracks. 2.) Regular yellow beeswax in small amts adds DEPTH to your candle fragrance & HARDNESS to soft waxes. Thanks CS! I'll be back! :D

Authentic aroma

I order beeswax from local farmers here in the Pacific Northwest and I just thought I’d try this because I like it in pallet form when I opened it up it had that familiar set it smells like beeswax from beekeepers it may not be as strong of an aroma but I do like this particular beeswax I’ll buy it again
